    Nice and warm today. The last few mornings have been cold; around 35 or 40.

    New owner, some money being spent. I'm going to hit it after the log ride reopens, it's getting major work done on it.

    I remember the log ride at Knotts as being the best one ever.

    Yes, I've heard that they're spending money on Knotts too. Hopefully it'll return to its old self.

    I hope everyone stays safe Barry! I'm afraid we are in for a very long, dangerous fire year... its been so dry everywhere this last winter.

    It was late September, and a lot of rides were closed. The park wasn't very clean; it looked like it had been let go for too long. I doubt if we stayed 4 hours.

    Maybe I'll go back there someday. Its certainly cheaper than Disneyland.... but I know my way around the Disneyland area and Disneyland so well.

    Sketchup? And what is this?

    It was a bit cool this morning. I even got a bit cold last night. From 100 degrees a few days go to in the 70's today. Good ol' bi polar So Cal Weather!

    SketchUp is a 3D modeling program. I'm not putting together anything too crazy. Just a model of the house.

    Barry, I hope your family is safe from the fires. When the evacuations start, it's getting serious. I was the safe house for several fire seasons when I lived in San Diego.

    Oh that sound pretty cool! I'd like to do something like that with plans for my dream house... that I'm going to build when I hit the lottery...

    This week went super fast. I can't believe Friday is back again. I am waiting on an estimate to get my front stairs rebuilt. The stairs I have now were put in my brother, but that was about 25 years ago. Nothing lasts forever in Chicago, with our horrible Winters.

    Happy Friday, everyone. If it doesn't rain, maybe I can plant those three rose bushes that we bought.

    Happy Friday indeed! Movie and popcorn day at school! Working this weekend, so my next real day off will be the 11th.

    Hoping all of the fires burning in CA get controlled today and there are no injurys or deaths from them!

    Morning!

    This week has been the longest week ever! Every day has felt like it should have been Friday. And now that it is Friday...well, I'm super stoked for Gumball Rally tomorrow. Root for team Foolish Mortals to at least place - since it is our first rally, I'm not holding my breath to win it. Meh, it'll be fun no matter what.

    The "Springs" Fire (the one in the Camarillo/Newbury Park/T.O. area of Ventura County about 40 miles from downtown LA) is only 10 per cent contained and has burned over 10,000 acres.

    My in-laws went back home last night after the evacuation order was lifted but they've been warned to be ready because again today it's going to be hot, windy, and with humidity as low as 3 per cent in some areas.

    I've lived in this area for 30 years and can't remember a wildfire like this in May. September/October, yes; even January a couple of times, But never May. And it's all driven by the hot, dry "Santa Ana" winds.

    Thanks for the nice thoughts. As for me, I can't have coffee til I go to the lab for a "fasting" blood draw this morning. Then it's a day of housecleaning til I go to work tonight.

    Happy Friday all!
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
